Outdated photographs in Southgate Today do not represent current programming

This is the Director of the Southgate Veterans Memorial Library. It has come to my attention that, in the recent issue of Southgate Today, the pictures advertising our Summer Reading Program show entertainers who are not coming to the library this year. That is entirely my fault.

I sent Southgate Today pictures from past events, that I felt best showcased the great events we've hosted. It was never my intention to mislead anyone, to generate interest by falsely advertising well regarded entertainers.

It simply did not occur to me that the inclusion of these pictures could cause trouble, and I apologize profusely for my mistake. I can only ask for understanding, and hope that this does not cause you to lose faith in the library.

Introducing Hoopla

The Hoopla logo, which is just their name

We now offer access to Hoopla, which gives you the ability to enjoy books, movies, audiobooks, comics, music, and more! Hoopla works a bit differently than our other digital offerings. Your library card gives you 3 play credits each month, which can be used to borrow any Hoopla title. The library pays only for titles that are borrowed, no upfront cost for access.

Because the library pays for each item borrowed, we ask that, if you are searching for titles that may be available through Overdrive, you check there for it first. Also, please avoid borrowing items you’re not sure you want; this will help us manage the cost of Hoopla, and prevent you from wasting one of your 3 monthly play credits.

The End of Late Fees at Southgate Library

The Southgate Veterans Memorial has removed overdue item fines! After much consideration and debate, it was agreed that charging fines for overdue items works against our goal of providing access to information to everyone. This change is being undertaken on a trial basis, while we gather information, to ensure that removing fines helps us reach more people, does not disrupt library operations, or impede the sharing of resources. We are confident that this change will make the library a more pleasant and inviting place for all. Please click HERE for more information.
